The body of laws governing the conduct of business, whether in the public or private sector, is large and varies from state to state. These laws protect employers as well as employees – from the local pizza joint to the largest international conglomerate.
North Carolina is consistently recognized as one of the most attractive jurisdictions in the country in which to conduct business. It has ranked as one of Forbes’ top 5 Best States for Business for 10 consecutive years. This is a consequence of a number of factors including the state’s competitive tax regime, attractive legal and regulatory environment, the availability of skilled labor and its low business costs (such as electricity, construction, and labor costs as well as a low cost of living).
